Additional Information:A mid-19th century two-story random-width stone structure with a sloping roof that has a stepped gable stuccoed facade. A frame shed roofed structure originally built as a carriage rental has been added along the east side. Plain windows and doors in the stone section window cornices and a large double access door into the frame addition are features of this 19th century utilitarian structure. This 19th century livery and carriage rental is important as an historic structure because it is one of the few utilitarian buildings from the early period of Darlington's history that remains as it was built. This building is historically significant to the development of Darlington's commercial district as a mid-ninteenth century historic district. Originally called J.B. Cutting's Livery Stable, it served as a livery all through the 19th century and early part of the 20th century. There were a number of liveries in Darlington, but this is the only one to have survived. Abe Mosher bought the livery in 1872. After that there were several different owners. A livery was a necessary service, especially in a town such as Darlington. Many visitors came to Darlington by way of railroad, and therefore found it necessary to hire horse and carriage for any further travel.
